Absolutely! Not only we love to travel to new locations but the kick we get from going to new shooting places cant be expressed in words. 

 

Cinematic video’s

 

What's the difference between Cinematic Film & Traditional Video ?
This is an interesting question…

Across the industry there are several different opinions on the differences between the two terms,however here is my understanding explaining the difference

  • Cinematic Film – A project requiring a creative direction.A story that needs a vision/a script/some acting/scenes creation/planning/Q&A/nice music.Anything similar to a movie you see.Its also called cinematography.
  • Traditional Video – A project that’s documented with continuous,straightforward,liner method(hence require zero artistic input or development)

Now imagine below scenario

  • While a wedding is going on, a traditional video will put 2-3 cameras in one corner or on tripod and shoot the entire wedding with straight forward shots and when you get final product it will have everything that happened in your wedding uncut with some not so good music and approx 6-8hours of long footage
  • Now same wedding is shot by cinematographers with a pre planned story line,shot selection in mind,straight and unique angles and then delivered in HD quality with all unnecessary scenes cut and crisp editing with soothing songs that matches to occasion with a mix of interviews and all this in just 1 hour of footage.Wont you be happy seeing this ? .

What is your turnaround time for FILM ?
It depends from projects to projects basis and duration of wedding/months when we shooting the wedding.

As part of the contract we will agree upon anytime between 90-120 days from last date of the event/pending payment due.

Can you shoot in 4K?
While all our primary camera shoots in High Definition(HD 2k).Which is good to play in any of the latest devices,however if you wish to have footage in 4K, then we have to rent a lot of equipment and hence that will also increase the cost of production.

I want to use a song by XYX singer in my video,can I choose music I want?
We hate to say it..but generally no, unfortunately.In some case yes, but depends on kind of songs

Licensing is the key.Music is art and really artists want to be paid for their music.Some labels allows to use music for online usage and some dont and have to pay a fee.

That said, if you have a specific soundtrack in mind please let me know and I’m happy to look into its licensing or use options
